The State of California Voters
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Jennifer Paluch, and Sonja Petek

September 2008

California voters are not happy. They are increasingly distrustful of government, disappointed in the people who run it, and convinced that the nation and state are headed in the wrong direction. And yet, as their disaffection has grown, Californians have begun to register and vote in record numbers. What are voters trying to say? What can they expect from their elected officials in the face of their own partisan divisions? This At Issue provides facts and figures on political involvement, partisan lines, and sources of voter discontent.
